about

This song is a call to action to protect our planet. All those glazed-eyed politicians need to see an optician because this decade is crucial with no time to lose! I wrote this just before lockdown in the UK but then it was difficult to get into the studio so there was an inevitable delay. I finally finished recording it in the summer with the studio set up for maximum social distancing. Michael, amazing sound engineer and producer, had worked so hard to make this happen...what a guy! During the lockdown, like many other people, I found solace in nature and long walks. Connecting with nature more deeply only makes the central message of the song resonate more vibrantly.

lyrics

Hindsight is a valuable thing
We can see clearly all things we should have done
Will we look back in ten years’ time?
Regret the things we failed to do each day

A new chance to make a change
The clock’s ticking, every minute passes by
Got to say the things that must be said
Do the things we know we’ve got to do cos we need some

2020 vision; everybody should
See an optician; send every
Glazed eyed politician
Cos it’s a new decade and it’s
Screaming out for change

Young lives, they’ve got no choice
Got to live with what they get handed down to them
Getting criticised cos they miss out school
Denied a future by the ones who had one

All around is a raging storm
Fires are burning while the coal face looks away
All the petrol heads buried in the sand
Can’t see the things we’ve got to do cos we need some

2020 vision; everybody should
See an optician; send every
Glazed eyed politician
Cos it’s a new decade and it’s
Screaming out for change

Oh, if we close our eyes,
We’ll never see things change, what we need is
2020 vision…everybody
2010 vision…to see clearly
2010 vision…
Do the things we know we’ve got to do cos we need some

2020 vision; everybody should
See an optician; send every
Glazed eyed politician
Cos it’s a new decade and it’s
Screaming out for change 2020 vision
Cos it’s a new decade and it’s
Screaming out for change 2020 vision
